Fighting Corruption and Exposing the Truth
The Congressional Integrity Project is committed to holding conservatives accountable for corruption and misconduct.
Demanding Integrity from Congress
Public officials should work in the public interest, not their own. But some conservatives are willing to toss aside their commitments to their constituents, to American democracy, and to the truth.
The Congressional Integrity Project sheds light on how our elected representatives abuse their positions to hold onto power, enriching themselves while posing as champions of hard-working Americans.
We can’t force them to act with integrity. But we can make sure the American people know the truth.
One of Congress’s most important responsibilities is to ensure public officials work in the public interest, not their own.
But conservatives in Congress are more interested in looking out for themselves – along with their friends and family – and tightening their grip on power. CIP is changing that dynamic. We’re going deep to expose their records of enriching themselves and enabling corruption at the highest levels — all while trying to distract voters with disinformation.
All In The Family: Corruption and Self-Dealing on the Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee
In the U.S. Senate, the task of providing primary oversight of “government operations” falls to the Homeland Security and
Governmental Affairs Committee. Unfortunately, members of the GOP majority consistently ignore wrongdoing at the highest levels of government when it
does not suit their agenda.
The Covid-19 pandemic has now killed more than 214,000 Americans, with no end in sight. Elected officials should be doing everything they can to preserve health care protections and expand coverage to everyone. Instead, some — like U.S. Sen. John Cornyn (R-TX) — remain focused on destroying health protections provided by the Affordable Care Act.
Johnson’s massive fortune is the direct result of nepotism and self-dealing in both the private sector and the U.S. Senate.
